Submit to a special issue of Sustainability

Dear Colleagues,

In view of the competing demands on land to adequately feed people, sustain biodiversity and ecosystem services, and mitigate climate change, there is a clear need for a systematic basis for allocating land use with respect to economic, social, and environmental objectives.

The journal Sustainability is hosting a Special Issue on “Land-Use Competition”. Studies are welcome that formulate an integrated environmental and economic assessment of the global consequences of land use strategies for food, feed, fuel, timber and carbon sink, consisting of novel operational approaches that propose resolving the associated methodological issues. Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and/or (parallel) economic-equilibrium modelling studies are of particular interest, as are consequential approaches for considering indirect effects when assessing land use strategies, or any other approach for estimating indirect land use change.
